A customer journey map (CJM) is a vital tool for building future-proof content strategies and content models that are customer-centric*, not brand- or channel-centric. Customer journey mapping enhances our understanding of users’ potential experiences and brand interactions across multiple touch-points and channels.
Customer journey maps are a way to lay out the ‘story of accomplishing a series of tasks’ from a user’s perspective. Instead of listing a series of tasks or sales lifecycle phases in an abstract way, or describing a static persona with no sense of time or place, CJMs seek to paint a detailed picture of the user’s experiences, content needs, and feelings along the way to accomplishing an objective.
Although conceptually similar to a use case, process description, or a workflow diagram, CJMs are richer and more customer-centric. Across the stages of the journey, CJMs bring together content requirements with a matrix of potential channel details such as devices, staff interactions, and physical environments. This unifies a large amount of customer understanding into a consumable deliverable, allowing teams to build personalisation and omnichannel-ready content models and editorial plans. Because they help improve processes, refine content targeting, and enable contextual and personalised content, CJMs are becoming key elements in modern content projects.
